The sky is a territory of children

From Moses saved from the water to the Child in the manger of Bethlehem, it is said that God speaks to the world through the children. Children still retain everything human beings need in order to remain human: they know how to wonder and to ask questions; they have faith and know how to believe and to create. This book originated from an exhibition that illustrated how, in art, the mystery of children is manifested more and more clearly, arriving at the intuition of the avant-garde that an artist must become a child again in order to draw from the purest source of creativity and rediscover the truth, to look towards the sky.
